I received the movies Autism: The Musical and Fly Away for review. I was very interested in their content because I love children with Autism. I was a Special Education teacher and I have fond memories of the children I was able to reach while teaching. I think both movies depict what it is like for parents and children living with Autism. It is truly a disability that has no cause or cure. It is a rare blend of extraordinary talents and limited social cognition.
I would share both movies with the world so people truly understand what life is like with Autism . I truly became emotional during both movies as an educator and a mom. I believe that education and understanding are the keys to enable these children. I was moved by the motivation to place a musical together. I was not shocked that the children enjoyed preforming. I truly believe it is our perception that initially limits these children. If we teach to their strength and work toward motivating them and encouraging we will all progress. It is important to be remind that each person is unique and worthy.
